New on 8th or 9th in West 50s

Been to nearly all the old stand-bys. Looking for something mid-priced and good that's opened in the past six months or maybe a year.
I saw a little blurb in the Times about this new Japanese style bakery on 9th around 48th st. opening this week. Anyone has been?
That must be Kyotofu.. Unfortunately its not a bakery although they do sell cookies and other paraphenalia to go... The desserts are tasty, but a little expensive and on the small side, at least for me on a monday night without dinner padding my tummy.. Its a good alternative to chickalicious however, without the need to schlep to EV.
Kyotofu is actually also a bakery (or at least, it will become one in the next few months)-- their daytime hours are going to be dedicated to baked goods, and their evening hours are more for sit-down desserts and drinks (in the same vein as Chikalicious). We just wrote a review of it yesterday, in fact.
Whym really is very good; I'd recommend it, especially if new stuff is what you're after. It's run by the same man who operates Eatery, but the food at Whym is a few hundred percent better. (And we wrote about it, as well, if you want to see pictures).
